Google returns to the Play Store after removing Parlor after the US Capitol riots

Tata Group in talks with Wistron to manufacture iPhone in India: Report

Parler is returning to the Google Play Store after being removed by Google following the January 2021 US Capitol riots. This social media app has gained popularity among US conservatives. It was launched in 2018 as an alternative to other social media platforms like Twitter. It gained traction from supporters of former US President Donald Trump. However, the Parlor app was removed from several major technology platforms due to its failure to screen violent content that led to Trump supporters believed to have attacked the US Capitol.

According to Reuters, the Parlor app is being restored to the Google Play Store as several measures are taken to improve its content controls.

A Google spokesperson said the app now has an option to block abusive users and remove content that may incite violence. The app has been extensively modified to comply with Play Store policies. It went live on the Play Store on Friday.

However, Parlor offered Android users a standalone version of the app from their website after it was removed from the Play Store.

Parler was also removed from Apple’s App Store after the January 2021 riots. Then it was restored in May last year.
